of finance jeremy siegel and trusted american businessman steve forbes. both onset and ready to start this discussion at 6:00. first, though, andrew has a few of the top business headlines. >>> let's talk about some of the headlines this morning. cisco systems buying cloud network start up meraki for $1.2 billion in cash. it was founded in 2006 by members of m.i.t.'s laboratory for computer science. joe, i don't know if you take credit for any of that. bp plans to spend up to $5.9 billion buying back stock. last week the oil giant agreed to pay record criminal penalties over the deepwater horizon disaster. and americans are carrying more credit card debt and being less diligent about making on time payments. trans union now reporting that average credit card debt for borrowers grew 4.9% in the third quarter and meantime the rate of credit card payments at least 93 days overdue rose slightly to three quarters of a percent. this is still a historically low level suggesting most card holders prioritize card payments over other financial obligations such as a mortgage. and attention twink
nashville is steve wise. he's the author of that letter and he's the president and ceo of identified, inc. steve, welcome. congratulations. i want to ask you briefly. in the first term, president obama on the stimulus package and on obama care, there was no compromise. there was no reaching across the aisle. do you believe, sir, that in the second term president obama will change and will find common ground with republicans? >> well, larry, i'm an optimist. i believe that you need to give people a chance, you need to tell them you support them and then you need to hold them accountable. that's why i felt that i needed to send that message off to the president and to my representatives, really telling them that time is now. we can't wait any longer. we've got to do something. i'll support you, but i'll also hold you accountable and watch that it's happening. >> i want to have the same positive view you do, second term, clean slate, et cetera, et cetera. so when he read your letter with your very clear message about compromise and common ground between the two parties, do you think, steve,
you think it's lowe's or home depot? we'll do that in "talking numbers," tanner and steve cortez. thank you for joining us. from a technical perspective, what do you think, lowe's or home depot? >> i prefer lowe's. if we look at a 20-year chart starting with home depot you can see the set-up is quite reminiscent of 1995 to 1999. the last four years resembles that period. 1995 to 1998 you saw home depot have a gradual healthy upbeat. from '99 we saw a steep assent, that was an unhealthy move. similarly from 2008 to 2011 we saw a healthy gradual uptrend. the stock has more than doubled. if we look at lowe's, on the other hand, you can see that actually it's a similar type of set-up but a much more healthy trend. from '95 to '99 a gradual three-year rally and then a steeper assent but still not too excessive this time around similarly. >> steve, you like home depot. i got to admit, that charge made it look like a parabolic curve there. >> i do prefer home depot. i would say i disagree with you for a couple of reasons. comparing the present period to the late '90s is a false analogy.
steve jobs. you're probably already using something this quiet genius already invented. "the wall street journal report" begins right now. >> this is america's number-one financial news program. "the wall street journal report." now, maria bartiromo. >> here's a look what's making news as we head into a new week on wall street. corporate america had a strong message for president obama this week. ceos from more than a dozen of america's largest companies met with the president and warned that washington must reach a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. the president also sat down with congressional leaders and officially began negotiations. if congress doesn't act, taxes on income, capital gains, dividends and estates will all go up. and automatic spending cuts will kick in, beginning on january 1st. this week, i spoke with alan simpson and erskine bowles, authors of a deficit reduction plan about what needs to be done. >> you can't tax your way out of this. you can't cut spending your way out of this. you can't grow your way out of this. so grab hold, it's going to be a rocky, rocky road. >>
on the fed. over to steve liesman. >> maria, thanks. fed vice chair janet yellen saying that the federal reserve shows optimal policy could dictate lower rates through 2016. also saying the fed could eliminate calendar date guidance entirely and replace it with economic targets. that's been discussed among others. charlie evans says she's strongly supportive of using these economic targets and they would promote automatic stabilizers, allowing the market to adjust automatically to incoming data. it would also help the public understand fed policy. also says the fed is considering forecasting optimal policy pass by individual members. so by the way, janet yellen chairs the subcommittee on communications. these are important words from an important person. on the fed and inflation, she's remiebdsing us a 2% inflation target is the central tendency, not the ceiling. if the 2% is a ceiling, what would happen is all the deviations would be below 2%. she's reiterating what the fed has said. it's symmetrical. so maria, at the end of the day, these are important comments from janet yellen, who's
the fiscal cliff? steve leisman has the maps that will show us which states and counties stand to get hit the hardest by potential federal spending cuts. everything is bigger in texas. including the strategy for taking down this building. we'll show you what happened when the engineers pushed the plunger. that's next. >>> if congress drifts u.s. economy off the fiscal cliff, the department of education's 2013 budget will be cut by over $4 billion with $256 million cut from the federal student aid program. and his new boss told him two things -- cook what you love, and save your money. joe doesn't know it yet, but he'll work his way up from busser to waiter to chef before opening a restaurant specializing in fish and game from the great northwest. he'll start investing early, he'll find some good people to help guide him, and he'll set money aside from his first day of work to his last, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. it's just common sense. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very
andrew ross sorkin and steve liesman. joe is out sick. we hope he's feeling better. futures are rebounding a bit. stocks finished near session lows yesterday, down 185 points at the end of the day. all the major s&p sectors closed in negative territory. nasdaq and russell 2,000 are now down more than 10% since the highs they reached back this mid september. the green arrows will be welcome to the bulls today. also, the ceo of mellon will be joining us to talk about the markets. as we've been talking about, the biggest issue for the markets right now seems to be the uncertainty surrounding the fiscal cliff. yesterday business leaders urged president obama and lawmakers to prevent a year end across board tax rise that will go into act unless congress acts. >> he understands it requires a combination of tax increases and title refor and discretionary spending cuts that dnl democrats and republicans have to work together. i'm is sure there will be a lot of forth and back between republicans and democrats, the congress and the president as they start to work their way to a deal.
not be resolved in the next few weeks. you might recall casino magnet steve wynn announced a special dividend, before the election. goldman sachs wrote about this early in the fall, actually naming wynn as a candidate for this. they also noted it's more common for these things in q4. goldman didn't just nail it on wynn, they called it with franklin resources, transdigm and western refining. we'll watch them in the new year, if no deal is made, of course, bill, walmart up about 1.5%. back to you. >> brian, thank you very much. let's talk about this. many expect vinnesteto see thisf the looming cliff. is it wise or investors to try to buy stocks guessing on what the dividend tax will be coming 2013. >> michael, you don't think this is a good idea, these companies bringing the money forward. why not? why not help out an investor? you know taxes are probably going to be higher come january 1st next year. why not give the money snerl. >> i think a bad idea to take the money forward. if you take the money out of wynn and take the $750 million out, if you believe in trickle down economics will get b
steve mcmahon and grover norquist. is president obama worried about his legacy? will that make him more amenable to make a deal? >> well, i think every president thinks about their legacy. especially any president who is elected for a second term. they are looking at never again running for office again. and i think the reason you are seeing a president bring everybody in business leaders, labor leaders, and members of the opposition party is because he understands the significance of the moment and he understands the urgency of the need. and he wants to bring -- wants to bring everybody together around something where everybody gives a little bit but the country gets something significant. frankly, something the voters are asking for. which is a government that finally works. >> all right. agreed. i think voters would like a government that finally works and grow it is economy. you probably saw all of the stories today in "the new york times" and "wall street journal." the president is going to take this show on the road. what i'm trying to figure sought this. what is the show he takin
over the fiscal cliff affect your money? that's what we're talking about next. steve liesman does some cliff diving and breaks down the numbers on what it means to you and mean. >>> then, two professional negotiators have been listening to what the president is saying that he wants and what speaker john boehner said he wants to avoid. do they think we'll have a deal or no deal? you're going to want to hear what both of them have to say. they're coming up next. you're watching the "closing bell." stick around. >>> welcome back. well, the countdown is on. lawmakers in washington have just 47 days to reach a deal on the fiscal cliff or risk massive tax increases and massive spending cuts. senior economist reporter steve liesman is breaking down how going off the cliff will impact you. >> if it's not clear to people how the fiscal cliff will affect their wallets, i think this report will make it clear how it's going to mean real money out of your wallets. according to the tax policy center, this is the fiscal cliff and your taxes. if you're in the lowest, second, fourth, or middle quin til
is speaking. the embargo's lifted. steve leisman, what's he saying? >> fed chairman ben bernanke saying the federal reserve will continue to use policy tools to support the economic recovery and making some positive comments about the housing markets saying for the first time in a number of years the housing sector is improving and adding to jobs and growth in the economy but saying housing is not out of the woods. it still faces significant obstacles. pointing out though the benefits of the housing revival remain quite uneven. saying that strengthening the housing recovery is still a critical challenge for all policymakers. makes a special point here that i haven't seen in at least a while, if ever, talking about the impact of the housing crisis on lower income and minority communities, saying they have been disproportionately affected by the housing bust. i want to spend a little time talking about this because there is a message to bankers in this. he's pointing out, since 2006 when you look at purchase mortgages to african-americans and hispanics, it is down 65%. down 50% to non-his
the other side. i think you're more with steve on this. do you think that maybe there's a little bit of slowing but it's a huge opportunity? >> well, for me, we're seeing the worst is behind us. i think q3 data have shown to us the trade volumes, the in and outs recovering from our perspective, our ships are looking well. you look at our ships 95% fully laden from asia to europe, frankly, at this point in time our ships are 100% fully laden, and people have to understand that we talk about international trades, with he talk about value. for our business we talk about the volume. value is one thing but volume is another thing, and during good times, frankly speaking probably you know, goods are more valuable, probably value is good, and in bad times people will take for more high value commodities, gifts to low value, but potentially more volume-driven commodities, we're seeing the consumers shift in more and more towards low end consumer products. i think you see that from walmart, from jcpenney, on the show about ten minutes ago. so those things are happening. that's the fundamental
. the evening's main honoree was steve korman. at the end of the night he was to present a single $10,000 scholarship for a fox school student. so we all thought. most of these kids that go to temple aren't. you could feel the tension as the 20 finalists gathered him steve on stage. whach happen watch what happens. listen carefully. >> i have to tell you, i read 20 letters. is what we wrote about -- we're lucky the next generation's going to be amazing. all 20 when you think about it are winners. and i think we said $10,000. didn't we? we're changing it to $12,000. okay? and -- did i say all winners? you're all winners. you're all getting a scholarship. >> the room erupted. it was an electrifying moment. only thing better than seeing the faces of the kids who received the gifts was seeing the joy in steve korman's face as he did the giving. that's one face of business and success, simon, that we sometimes fail to see. >>> simon, i was thinking about this. it was a really moving movement. often philanthropy takes place privately. sometimes anonymously. but here was an -- and sometimes
a critical mass when you have the front man of a well known band talking about sequestration. >> steve jobs, there were very few people he believed in. but the one guy he always wanted in his corner was bono. he wanted him in his economic segment because he's so smart. >> have you ever met him. >> no. >> i have. >> you have? >> i met him up in dabos. >> partied with him? >> it was a late night. but we just spent a little time with him and i was with andrew sorken, he said can we do lunch sometime? can i get your number? he said i'll find you. >> i can't believe you just gave that on air. that's great. >> that's my new one. >> the big news, was he found? >> i don't know. >> we got to get andrew on the show now. >> maybe he'll phone in. >> get an update. >>> today on the closing bell the two men behind simpson bowls deficit reduction plan which has been touted as the answer to the fiscal cliff. >> meantime, duelling earnings from discount retail rivals walmart versus target. which store chain is your best bet as we go into the holiday shopping season. but first -- >> coming up, investigating
be a better buy either las vegas sands or wynn resorts? >> i think that steve wynn is a winner. i don't say that to be, you know, glib. i think you want to own wynn here. i say that if it got to the mid 100s you have to pull the trigger. it's can't back away now. steve in connecticut? >> caller: looking at u.s. domestic play, you did a segment in june, it rallied and then reported earnings on october 24th, it seemed like the earnings were great. great guidance. but it took a 9.5% beat as of the next day. does the stock still have room to roll? >> i think it does. i was talking with stephanie, the research director of actionworks.com. there is a class of stocks that are up 50% or more. unless they blow away the numbers and get you to do a raise, they just don't go up. that's part of what's their problem. red bull? that's right. finally be a bull in the china shop. the macro says it. the micro says it. things are stabilizing. i think 2013 will be a very good year for china which is why in 2012 you have to buy the fxi. stay with cramer. >>> coming up, trucking? westport innovations seemed out
to be had. >> steve, you have some breaking news earlier. you reported on janet yellen. tell us what that says about where we're headed in terms of economic growth in 2013. >> well, i think it tells us the fed is going to remain as loose as it possibly can through '13, '14, '15, and now even '16. janet yellen saying an optimal policy path, one that stays as close to 2% on inflation and tries to get the unemployment rate down to 6% could mean the fed remains easy through early 2016. by the way, they're thinking of scrapping all of that calendar date guidance through mid-2015. scrap it. she's strongly supportive in scrapping it in exchange for economic targets. the strongest signal yet we're going to have changes in the fed's communication policy. >> rick santelli, what do you make of it? >> with the fed, it depresses me. they're dancing around the edges. these aren't discussions about how we can stop the low-interest rate scenario so the government doesn't borrow too much at low interest rates. we're talking about targets. what happens to targets during crisis? they throw them out the
-founder of tea party 365. steve, did the president sound like he was ready to do business with speaker john boehner today or not? >> no. this was no olive branch, larry. i was quite disappointed with that speech and press conference. and you noted that the stock market really collapsed as president obama was speaking because he seems not just today but the event that he had on friday, the two statements that he's made, he's been pretty emphatic that he wants those tax rates to go up, come hell or high water. that is going to lead to a mexican standoff with the republicans if he sticks with that position. i'd like to make one other point about that press conference, larry. i listened to the whole 45 minutes to 60-minute press conference, and not once that i could hear in that speech did he talk about the most important thing, which is cutting government spending. why don't we get the government spending down and then talk about raising taxes? >> you know, if you google up spending and obama, you know what you get? nothing. blank pages. you get nothing. >> in fact, larry, he said he wants his
. there are befoargains being created. >> but you're not ready to buy yet? >> not yet. >> i want to get to you, steve liesman. >> i thought you were going to ask me the rest of the 12 steps. >> you know, the republicans, we're hoping for a compromise, but the republicans have been digging in their heels because they've been saying higher tax rates would be job killers. who what extent would they be job killers? >> well, i'd say there's a huge debate over that. i know there are people who believe religiously that any tax increases will reduce job growth. i think that in the first order, whatever your religious feelings on that, uncertainty is almost certainly a job killer before somewhat higher taxes are. i think huge tax increases obviously would reduce job growth. if you think about what's happened to our tax code, a lot of it has become on a year to year basis. i have no idea how businesses can plan. with the fiscal cliff, without a solution, it takes nearly the entire tax code and puts it on a year to year basis. i would be very weary right now of listening to these hopeful terms that come out. th
removed from an early report. nbc's steve handelsman is in washington with details. >> this wasn't a hot seat for the former cia director. instead, he got a very, very warm welcome. lawmakers praised his work. they allowed him to avoid reporters. they're clearly sorry to see him go. petraeus, they said, apologize the for having to resign. he didn't really open the door to a lot of new information, we're told, from people who were in the meeting. in the testimony, in the hearings, didn't open the door to a lot of new information about why the disaster occurred. the cia knew there were threats in benghazi, knew the state department had stepped up security. but exactly why the disaster occurred, in the clear from petraeus' testimony. but he did shed a little light on the political controversy, about what u.n. ambassador, obama u.n. a.m. bas door susan rice, said or did not say five days after the tragedy when she went on the sunday talk shows. nbc's "meet the press" specifically, and denied there was al qaeda involvement saying the earlier stories that there had been a riot gone wrong is wh
the benghazi consulate attack. however, that's 180 degree about-face from what he said before. nbc's own steve handelsman has more. >> reporter: larry, thanks. good evening. general petraeus got a warm welcome up here on capitol hill from lawmakers clearly sorry to see him go. the former cia director testified the u.s. intelligence knew islamic militants were a threat in benghazi and specified soon after the september 11th attack in so-called talking points to be used with the public that al qaeda-type organizations were responsible for the attack. but as those talking points made the rounds of other national security organizations here in washington, the word al qaeda got changed to "extremists." and when the points got to u.n. ambassador susan rice, she made no mention of al qaeda or extremists when she went on nbc's "meet the press" five days after the attack. rice did tout the anti-terrorist accomplishments of president obama. pet rae ugs denies any political pressure on the cia to scrub al qaeda from its talking points. new york republican peter king said today, "we need to find out who d

which state you're in, but it's coming. [ticking] >> welcome to 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm steve kroft. in this edition, we look at three stories linked by the financial collapse of 2008. first, we examine a scam that's cost thousands of americans their homes. then we look into wall street's shadow market of credit default swaps. finally, a report on the perilous state of state finances. we begin with the foreclosure crisis. in the aftermath of the great recession, the huge number of foreclosed properties was a significant factor in weighing down the economy. many were stuck on the market for an unexpected reason: the banks couldn't find the ownership documents. as scott pelley first reported in april 2011, lenders wanting to evict people found that often, the legal documents behind the mortgages simply weren't there. caught in a jam of their own making, some companies appeared to have resorted to forgery to throw people down on their luck out of their homes. >> these folks on the street aren't homeless. they slept on the sidewalk because they want to keep their homes. facing foreclosu
. >> and yours over here? >> mine will be number 17. >> welcome to 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm steve kroft. the so-called great recession sparked by the financial crash of 2008 continues to impact the business practices of wall street and the lives of americans on main street. this edition examines the seismic shock of the economic collapse on american families and what many of them believed were their most unshakable investment vehicles: their homes and their 401(k) retirement savings plans. we begin today with the culture of wall street and the role that it played in the crash. if you had to pick someone to write the autopsy report on the wall street financial collapse in 2008, you couldn't do any better than michael lewis. he is one of the country's preeminent nonfiction writers with a knack for turning complicated, mind-numbing material into fascinating yarns. he wrote his first best seller, liar's poker, about his experiences as a young wall street bond trader when he was still in his 20s. another lewis best seller called the big short: inside the doomsday machine was published in march 2010.

, steve? >> is this japan? >> they shouldn't be increasing the quota? >> why? >> because they have no idea about the stocks. they try to pretend there's one stock in the mediterranean, one stock in the atlantic, they have no idea. it's bad data leading to bad decision. >> if earn to take this conversation, you know what it would lead to? the tragedy of the commons. >> good point. >> when there's ownership of something, you conserve. when anybody -- everybody going after the same thing, they figure if i don't do it, somebody else is going to do it. if you own timber, every time you take down a tree, you plant two more. >> much better about protecting the resource and the europeans contend they have their own stock. but we've shown through the tagging data that these fish go across the mediterranean to the atlantic, up and down the coast, it's an extraordinary fish, a good one to preserve. >> okay. >> okay. >> let's go back to steve since you're there. you've got an interesting report, and i promise you i'll be listening very carefully about the fiscal cliff and who is going to be impacted.
